Manchester Orchestra have premiered the first official music video for "Top Notch," from their forthcoming album Cope, out April 1 on Loma Vista/Favorite Gentlemen Recordings. The relentlessly aggressive yet melodic "Top Notch" explains lead singer/songwriter Andy Hull, "is about two brothers trying to escape a fire." The visual presentation of the song consequently is as arresting and emotionally charged as one might expect.

"We tried to create something that told less of an immediate story and caused more of a gut reaction," says Hull about the video. "Something to be interpreted without laying it all out in front of you. It's also quite terrifying. Like somebody was digging and found this VHS artifact in the ground." According to director John Minton, "the video for 'Top Notch' conveys the sinister scenario of the song in a fragmented manner. It plays with suggestion and decay, hopefully leaving you with a lasting mental impression."

The Atlanta-based band will tour North America in support of Cope this spring, with Balance and Composure as well as Brooklyn native and Favorite Gentlemen label-mates Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band coming along for the ride.
